Charges Filed Against Fire Detection Salesman
Charges have been filed against a Covina, Calif., company and one of its salesmen for selling fire detection equipment in the city of El Cajon without a license. The salesman was specifically charged with soliciting without a fire department permit and a business license, failure to pay the license fee and failure to post a $1,000 bond. The company, charged with violating the same city ordinances, is said not to have been served.
The charges were filed by El Cajon Fire Chief R. M. Halgren who told FIRE ENGINEERING’S correspondent that fire detection equipment which the company sold to an El Cajon housewife is not approved by Underwriters’ Laboratories.
